SSL VPN services on the Stormshield Network web portal

When authentication is enabled on the firewall (module Users\Authentication\General, select “Enable the captive portal”), then you will be able to access Stormshield Network’s SSL VPN features.

 

To access SSL VPN features, the procedure is as follows:

Open the web browser.

Indicate the URL ”https:// firewall_address” in the address bar.

The firewall authentication page will appear; you need to log in.

If the you have the privileges to use VPN features, the Secure access menu will appear, enabling access to SSL VPN features.


When the authentication duration expires or access to the SSL VPN is denied, the user will be redirected to the transparent authentication page (SSO) if this method is available.

The other methods of secure access enable accessing other secure sites configured by the administrator.

This menu displays the list of other servers the administrator has configured and to which users have access.

WARNING

No links are available on this page. However, this window must be kept open throughout the duration of the connection (the window can be reduced), otherwise the connection will be lost.

 

To access resources the administrator has configured, it has to be indicated to the client software (e.g. a mail client) that the server to which he has to connect to retrieve mail is no longer the usual mail server. An address like “127.0.0.1: Listening_port” where “Listening_port” is the port specified on the server configuration, has to be indicated.

The listening port for each configured server will be displayed on the Stormshield Network web portal page.
